A new filter from the dealer is 3.90 + vat

You also need 4.75 litres of an BMW approved long life oil.

Mobil 1 is one such oil, as are most full synthetics.

Finally you need a 36mm socket to get the filter housing
off (and you will need a universalj oint on your ratchet
extension )

Should not cost you more that 40 quid then if you do it yourself.

The filter comes with a replacement o-ring for the filter
housing. Also the filters BMW supply appear to be of a much
higher quality than fitted during engine assembly in brazil.

Well worth doing it yourself after a couple thousand miles
